Bigelow Tea CEO visits breast care center


Bigelow Tea President and CEO Cindi Bigelow visits naturopathic physician Dr. Veronica Waks and Patient Care Coordinator Pat Poniros at the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center.

Bigelow Tea President and Chief Executive Officer Cindi Bigelow visited the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center in Fairfield to discuss naturopathic medicine with Dr. Veronica Waks and to learn more about the center’s wellness programs.

Bigelow Tea supports the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center’s wellness programs through the Bigelow Tea Community Challenge, an annual run that raises more than $100,000 each year and supports 18 local nonprofit organizations.

Bigelow Tea is developing a wellness program for employees and partnering with the center to provide lectures and workshops on health and wellness topics. Workshops will be held during business hours at Bigelow’s corporate offices in Fairfield.

In addition to naturopathic medicine, the center’s providers will discuss nutrition, sleep therapy, emotional well-being, massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga, Reiki and pilates, among other topics. The center offers a comprehensive line-up of health and wellness programs.

“Employees will learn about wellness services that can have a long term impact on their health,” Bigelow said. “We want to make it easy for employees to access services that can help them stay well at any age.”

As part of the Bigelow Tea wellness program, employees will be invited to participate in the Bigelow Wellness Challenge by taking steps to improve their health through diet, exercise and classes.

“We are developing a point system to reward employees for healthy lifestyle choices,” Bigelow said. “Employees who eat healthy, exercise regularly and visit health and wellness providers will earn benefits, such as credit toward a yoga or other wellness class at the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center.”

As the cost of healthcare continues to rise, many companies are encouraging their employees to take a preventive approach to health.

“At the Norma Pfriem Breast Care Center we believe that education and prevention are the best means to staying healthy,” said Nancy Church, the breast care center’s community education coordinator. “Our newly expanded facility on Beach Road offers a comprehensive approach to wellness. We work with community groups and businesses to introduce our wellness services to their members and employees and develop Lunch and Learn and other programs that bring our providers to them.”
